Coverts on the trail

Thank you to the 76 volunteers who completed the 2023 NH Coverts Project Survey! The cumulative impact of Coverts Cooperators all over the state is – as always – impressive and inspiring. You've managed wildlife habitat, helped to conserve land in your communities, and engaged your friends, families, and neighbors. The variety of ways you volunteer and the number of hours you put in is incredible.

The 2023 Annual Report for the NH Coverts Project is now available, and represents a compilation of all of your surveys and other data our office collects (e.g. Speaking for Wildlife program information). Check out the full report here:
